Q and A with writer, director and audience after each show.


Some audience feedback “Really portrayed the library as so much more than books!” “I liked the librarian – particularly the hints at the complexity of her background and her personality, the interplay between the two characters, the sense of play, fun and discovery in a library setting. “I like that it’s accessible as a story – lots of different aspects for people to engage with, the language is open and appealing.”

“Really good!”

“Really engaging!”

“Delightful!“

“The play has great potential for a community and book festival audience too” “I think it would be appealing to a wide audience, just as a library is”
